Re: Duo Mat clockwork question

Thanks all for proving me with the confidence to have a go at this. It proved easier than I feared! I removed the governor and all looked clean and well until I actually tried to move the two weights which were gummed up solid. A bit of alcohol and all is well again. Next question. The white ball wh...

Duo Mat clockwork question

Re: Rosenfield mechanism identified in 'What the Butler Saw' case

That’s really interesting! Definitely the same mech. Older than I thought.
I’ve finished working on mine now. Made 7 new carriers to replace the missing ones from brass sheet and sorted the electrics with a small bulb and battery.
